Jaguars 'actively' exploring their QB options

NFL analysts react to Blake Bortles reported extension with the Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars have chose to stay the course with their quarterback situation, signing Blake Bortles to a three-year contract extension, the team announced Saturday.

The Jacksonville Jaguars stunned a lot of people when the news broke that they extended the contract of quarterback Blake Bortles.

Essentially, they locked him up for three more years while also keeping their options open - the Jags could cut him after 2018 and be on the hook for just $6.5 million.

"Everybody dreams of making $100 million and the quarterbacks are expected to sign that big deal", Bortles added. It will include $26.5 million guaranteed and can be worth as much as $66.5 million with incentives. He completed north of 60 percent of his passes for 3,687 yards with 21 touchdowns and 13 interceptions en route to leading Jacksonville to a surprise AFC South title.

Whatever the case, the Jaguars have positioned themselves well at least for this year with the $10 million cap hit for Bortles, and their roster assembly continues to be among the most impressive in football.

" Broward Sheriff Scott Israel told reporters Wednesday: "Rifles from this point forward", the Miami Herald reported ". The Republican said the commission, likely be led by a parent of one of the slain children, would have subpoena power.

Jacksonville had previously picked up Bortles' $19 million team option for the 2018 season. Allen Robinson suffered a torn left ACL on the third play of the season, and veterans Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee combined to miss eight games. The Vikings already had a good chance to sign the high-priced free-agent quarterback, but those chances appear to have increased with the move made by Jacksonville on Saturday. Bortles averaged 21 turnovers in each of his first three seasons but turned the ball over 16 times in 2017, including an interception that was ripped away from tight end James O'Shaughnessy.

Blake Bortles might have legitimately turned the corner previous year. The players in the Jaguars' locker room respect Bortles toughness, a fact noted by Tom Coughlin in a statement: "Blake has proven, with his toughness and dependability, that he can be the leader this team needs going forward".

"I'm just happy to win", he said.

Even more important to the Jaguars, Bortles avoided game-changing mistakes. The Jaguars are a built-to-last contender, with young talent all around their often dominant defense and Leonard Fournette coming off a productive rookie season at tailback. He also threw three touchdowns compared to zero picks in three postseason starts.
